The Pak 43 (Panzerabwehrkanone 43) was a German 88 mm anti-tank gun developed by Krupp in competition with the Rheinmetall 8.8 cm Flak 41 anti-aircraft gun and used during the Second World War. The Pak 43 was the most powerful anti-tank gun of the Wehrmacht to see service in significant numbers, also serving in modified form as the main gun on the Tiger II tank, and Elefant, Jagdpanther and Nashorn tank destroyers. The improved 8.8 cm round had a relatively flat trajectory out to 910 m (1,000 yd) and was able to frontally penetrate most Allied medium tanks at long ranges, theoretically exceeding 1,800–2,300 m (2,000–2,500 yd) although most actual engagement distances were far below that. Even the Soviet IS-2 model 1943 tanks and IS chassis based tank destroyers were vulnerable to the Pak 43. The Pak 43 had certain drawbacks as the raise in muzzle velocity was compromised by the need to keep down the weight of the gun. The light tube came at the price of a "considerably reduced safety factor". German gun crews were instructed not to use high-velocity ammunition when the tubes have fired as many as 500 rounds.The gun's maximum firing range exceeded 13 kilometers (8 miles).The main version of the Pak 43 was based on a highly effective cruciform mount, which offered a full 360 degree traverse and a much lower profile than the ubiquitous anti-aircraft 8.8 cm Flak 37. However the manufacture of this version was initially slow and costly.
